Love Poem

OT: Qingshi

HYBRID A drama about a messed-up marriage – or a meta-film about filmic truth and the staging of a private life? Father, mother, baby. A car. Unspoken accusations and old resentments. Wang Xiaozhen portrays a road trip to the edge of a marital abyss. That the father is a film-maker who records every stage of the disastrous excursion is not destined to deescalate the situation. Later, the couple take on roles: he the unfaithful husband, she the lover. The audience begins to wonder: are we watching an oppressive chamber play or are we accomplices in some exhibitionistic documentary?


WANG XIAOZHEN (*1989 in Linyi, China) studied film and TV. His debut film Around That Winter opened the 2013 Beijing Independent Film Festival. Love Poem is his second full-length film.
